There will be no fundamental changes in the attitude of the West towards Russia, even if Moscow makes concessions and agrees to fulfill all the demands of its opponents, Russian President Vladimir Putin said during the “Direct Line”.

“If we give up completely and spit on our national fundamental interests, will there be any changes? Perhaps, there will be some external signals, but nothing will change drastically,” Putin stressed.

He also drew attention to the fact that Western countries, primarily the United States, put pressure even on those states with which they have no political differences.

According to the Russian president, non-market competitive methods are often used in the modern world.

Earlier, US President Donald Trump confirmed his meeting with his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin at the G20 summit, which will be held next week in Osaka.
